The Nashwaak Watershed Association Inc. and the City of Fredericton have been working together since 2011 on the restoration and preservation of this beautiful and valuable landscape known as a silver maple wetland forest.
This specific forest type is among the rarest, and most productive ecologies in eastern North America, and is home to many endangered species, as well as a favorite spot for paddling, fishing, and photography. More families come each year to picnic and play on the shores, and in the winter it is crisscrossed with people skiing or snow shoeing.
The planting of trees on this landscape may well be one the of the most effective and long lasting actions we can take today, to ensure that this beautiful place remains healthy and available to future generations.
Once restored, it can stand for centuries as a testimony to the wisdom and vision of todays’ city council and staff, and as an example of green infrastructure at its very best.
